Establishing the Conklin Pen Company® as a leader in American writing instruments, the Crescent Filler™ became one of Conklin® brand’s signature pens. Founder Roy Conklin from Toledo, Ohio, patented the design for the first self-filling pen in 1897, causing his company to thrive and gain the approval of author Mark Twain, who became the official spokesperson for the Conklin® brand.

The original Conklin Crescent Filler was the pen that made the brand famous. Thanks to the ingenious design of Roy Conklin, the Crescent Filler was one of the first pens to have a fully self-contained filling mechanism.

The mechanism is simple: the barrel contains a rubber ink sac and a cutaway in the barrel allows you to push the crescent through the side of the pen. The crescent is attached to a metal bar that presses against the side of the ink sac, squashing any air or ink out of it; once you release, the sac returns to its original shape, drawing ink into the pen. After a few presses the pen will be completely full.

The filling mechanism certainly had its fans, as Mark Twain put it: "I prefer it to ten other fountain pens, because it carries its filler in its own stomach, and I cannot mislay even by art or intention. Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver; it cannot roll off the desk."

An additional improvement made to his design in 1903 was a slight change to the safety ring that prevents accidental pressing of the crescent and the undesirable expulsion of ink that would accompany it. Whereas the original ring was free to rotate, the improved ring is shaped such that it comes to a stop after about a quarter turn, and friction holds it in place sufficiently until you want to fill the pen again.

Vintage Green is accented with gold-plated trim and clip, and the barrel is a mix of iridescent dark green complemented with black. Screw on cap with the classic Conklin rocker-style pocket clip. Made from high-quality handmade resin.

Pen Engraving

We simply love stationery and understand how personalised stationery can be a source of great joy for the user. It always feels great to fill up the pages of a diary or planner that has been customised or personalised. It can be customized with your initials, name or your personal motto. It is even better when you are writing with a personalised pen!

We are able to provide pen graving with Chinese or Kanji characters. Our craftsman use the most advanced engraving machines, which have the ability to engrave pens in complex multilingual characters.

Pen Engraving Process

The engraving process cut into the surface of the pen, the result varies based on the pen material. The natural colour will show for a metal pen. For example, the silver colour shows for a stainless steel pen. For a pen that has lacquered finish, the engraving process will cut the lacquer surface and reveal the metal beneath.

Resin and plastic pens can also be engraved but there's no colour variation. Thus they will be filled with acrylic paint (which match to the trim of the pen) to make the engraving stand out.
